Facebook Profits Beat Expectations


Facebook has posted another exceptional quarter of growth, with profit up 186% from this time last year.

Facebook earned $2bn (£1.5bn) in the period from April to June, up from $719m in 2015.

Analysts had anticipated revenue of $5.8bn, but the company managed to beat even those high expectations bringing in $6.4bn in revenue.

Chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said the company was particularly pleased with the growth in video.
